Workers awarded $100 million in personal injury lawsuit

The attorneys at Levin & Perconti just came across an article describing a large federal jury verdict to workers who received personal injuries. A jury has awarded multi millions to ten workers in a personal injury lawsuit. The personal injury victims alleged that they sustained personal injuries as a result of contamination. Ten workers for a British Petroleum PLC plant (probably known to you as “BP”) have been awarded millions in the personal injury lawsuit jury verdict against the BP company. The Associated Press (AP) has reported that the BP workers were awarded millions by a federal jury last week, after alleging that they sustained personal injuries from contamination within the plant.

A quote from BP was published by the AP after the verdict was issued. BP stated that they were “shocked and outraged by [the] verdict.” BP states that it intends to appeal and that in it’s opinion, the verdict and punitive damages award is unjustified, improper, and unsupportable. The attorney for the personal injury victims was also quoted and explained that they had attempted to reach a settlement prior to verdict, but BP kept trying to minimize the personal injuries that the BP workers experienced. The attorney also stated that BP tried to attack the credibility of the workers and would not admit that they had released something dangerous that injured the workers.
